Bossy parrot orders Alexa assistant to play him music

This parrot from central India not only can talk but has learned to exploit the trick to ask digital assistant Alexa to play him his favourite music, in this hilarious parrot video.

Sniper, the African grey parrot, could be seen in video filmed on April 9 in Chandivali in Mumbai, Maharashtra state ordering Alexa to play "The Riddle", his favourite song according to his owner, Shijin Francis.

Shijin and his wife Lily welcomed Sniper into their home shortly after getting married, and the precocious parrot is considered part of their family.
